Exceptional accommodations
Thank you for a delightful experience! The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, even going out of their way to make sure I was accommodated when a flight was canceled. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, with plenty of opportunities to meet fellow travelers. I would definitely stay here again.

Short stay in Lusaka
We only stayed here for one night, but the property was spacious and well-decorated. The hostel is also well-located close to Arcades and Manda Hill shopping centers. The only issue was that the water pressure was a bit low when we were there, and the bathroom could have been cleaner.

Average accomodation near east park mall
It was close to East Park but was highly priced for a small room with a shared bathroom. Similar room near Levy Mall for 25-50% cheaper price. Outside is being renovated and smelled like fertilizer. Also neighbor has barking dog. Breakfast was eggs with toast. Host was nice.
